ITP V.016 EDITORS NOTE: YOU TUBE AUDIO VIDEOS GET MORE HITS COMPARED TO CONCEPT VIDEOS:
Ugh, this is over kill and monopolizing, better off on BANDCAMP.
Actually, I disagree, for both PR, webzines and fans, doing a video for every track on a release (METALLICA) makes no PR sense as people have less time to WATCH the videos as opposed to the easier option of listening to music (audio format) while multitasking (driving, walking, whatever). As you tube concept video views are down compared to straight music or lyric videos. Within the exception of SLAYER's video TRILOGY, as that was riveting. Give me and people time to digest the music or string together a concept for multiple videos,. All these videos from METALLICA in one day? I don't have the time right now (they haven't been metal in over 25 years). However, if METALLICA are uploading their entire new release on YOU TUBE, what a change in attitude compared to METALLICA VS. NAPSTER. For better or worse, you can listen to the new METALLICA release on the bands official YOU TUBE (METALLICA TV YOU TUBE) although I prefer BANDCAMP. For us music writers and bloggers, other webzines (every webzine has a different track, as it would be more convenient for fans via BANDCAMP) have exclusives on those videos, so when unlocked, maybe ITP V.016 will post them.
The late rock legend DAVID BOWIE launched a PRE RELEASE promotional campaign featuring a video concept trilogy.
One press release, please, stating the exclusive tracks and the media partners.
OK, here it is:
Thanks-Stay Metal, Stay Brutal-\m/ -l-
